V-DESIGN FELTSTUDIO
- textile art // feltmaker -
I am a felt-maker & textile artist, living in Sweden and working with nature materials. In my art I like to shape & arrange the feeling & experience that I find in the barren Nordic nature; its harsh beauty and the affluence of impressions that you get from it. I would like to make it possible to wrap oneself in a stone or a tree and feel the safety and security in a warm embrace... even when feeling lonely.
 
The Scandinavian epos and lore that have been my inspiration for a long time felts together in a natural way with textile techniques from all over the world. This as an inspiration for a new story and maybe also a new possible interpretation of the material.its form, means and meaning.
 
I make things for everyday use, with a touch of fairy-tale within every product. I love to convey the feeling of being well-grounded, roots to keep tight to what is loved most – the feelings that you get when being embraced by natures deep and beauty.
 
In my felt-art I mostly use wool from Swedish sheep and alpacas, but I also use other kinds of wool from controlled origin. When using fabric for nunofelting I choose primarily reused/redeployed fabric. I dye the textile either with biodegradable acid-dyes or with plants from my own garden and surroundings.
